Exchange 2010 SP1 Upgrade

I have installed a Microsoft Exchange 2010 server on Windows 2008R2, but when I upgrade it to SP1 all of the Exchange services become disabled and the installation won't complete as a result. I have reset the services to automatic and restarted them but the same thing happens when I try to reinstall.

This error message comes up:

Exchange Server component Hub Transport Role failed.
Error: Error:
The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
        if (get-service MSExchangeServiceHost* | where {$_.name -eq "MSExchangeServiceHost"})
        {
            restart-service MSExchangeServiceHost
        }
        " was run: "Service 'Microsoft Exchange Service Host (MSExchangeServiceHost)' cannot be started due to the following error: Cannot start service MSExchangeServiceHost on computer '.'.".

Service 'Microsoft Exchange Service Host (MSExchangeServiceHost)' cannot be started due to the following error: Cannot start service MSExchangeServiceHost on computer '.'.

Cannot start service MSExchangeServiceHost on computer '.'.

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it

This may help.  It says it is a problem with IPV6 not being fully disabled.

It points to a seperate article as this was found in previous releases.

I have tried the IPV6 fix, but get the same result. All services are enabled and set to automatic when I start the upgrade to SP1 but the upgrade seems to disable them all, then complain that they are disabled.

Have you got an Anti virus running on this machine?
If so please disable it first and re-apply sp1

What about this then?

it suggests continually setting the services to manual throughout the setup.  You can create a ps1 script to help.
